I need a phrase or word that with the same meaning as the phrase "not well thought out."
I am writing a major term paper on war. I am currently just creating a mindmap (I use them in the same way as an outline, because I tend to overthink outlines). My thought is that "war is never well thought out," or perhaps "war is not very well thought out." (Actually, the latter of those should be removed, it sounds rather daft.)
